SALISBURY — The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has added two men to its most wanted and are asking for the public’s help in finding them.

Juan Polito Temich, 33, was last seen in Salisbury and is wanted for sexual assault on a child. Parrish Nathaniel Jefferson, 25, is wanted for trafficking in heroin, which are charges that stem from a “drug dealer roundup” that occurred following an under cover operation.

Temich is estimated to be 5 foot 2 inches. He was originally charged this month with three counts of first-degree statutory sex offense, and three counts of felony indecent liberties with a child.

Jefferson is 6 feet tall, weighs 165 pounds and is last known to be in Mooresville. He was charged this month with nine counts of felony trafficking in heroin and three counts of felony possession with intent to sell and deliver a controlled substance.

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Juan Temich or Parrish Jefferson is asked to contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-797-4253, First Lt. Chad Moose at 704-216-8687 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
